WG could we please have HMCS Uganda cruiser added to the commonwealth fleet

This is a sub class of the fiji class the Ceylon class.

The Ceylon group were completed without 'X' 6-inch turret,  Uganda had two American pattern quadruple 40 mm Bofors mounts Mark III

If it could use HE and AP for commonwealth ships it would be good.

I'd prefer HMCS Ontario, as she doesn't have the taint on her service record that Uganda does. I agree though, I don't see why Uganda/Ontario couldn't be added as well. It would hardly be the first time WG released a ship under two different names...

HMCS Ontario was a different ship, being of the Swiftsure class. Uganda's final name under RCN control was HMCS Quebec.

The in-game differences are relatively minor as the Swiftsures IRL were characterized by their significantly improved fire control and command/control systems, and I'm not sure how that would be modelled in-game.

Indeed she was, but for the purposes of the game the ships were so similar that it wouldn't be much of a stretch to use the name on a slightly modified Mysore model. WG could use consumables to replicate the enhanced command and control of the Swiftsure class, and put her at T7.

You really want to have a Minotaur at tier 7?

seeing as the Ontario literally is the Minotaur.

That Minotaur is not the one we have in the game.

As @Ensign_Cthulhu said, it's not the Minotaur of T10, which was never built. 

A T7 HMCS Ontario would be workable if she had HE/AP, heals, hydro, crawling smoke, and torps.

The name Minotaur got reused after the Swiftsure class ship got sold/given to Canada. 

Same way one of her half sisters would become the Lion

HMCS Ontario was actually laid down as the HMS Minotaur. It was transferred to the RCN before it was completed and renamed HMCS Ontario. Completely different ship than the Uganda/Quebec.

HMCS Ontario was a Minotaur class. The first one in fact.

No, it really isn't.

As discussed earlier in the thread the Minotaur in game is an entirely made up class, whereas the Minotaur/Swiftsure class was an improved Crown Colony/Fiji class. I worked in Esquimalt, there is a model of HMCS Ontario in the of the HQ lobby that I walked past a couple of times a week while posted there.

The Minotaur in game isn't entirely made up, and if the British economy hadn't been dead on its feet would have been built immediately after the war (46/47).
